Mosley gets defensive

When logic and persuasion are failing to vindicate your political position, reach for flimsy, vague analogies instead. In defence of the FIA’s ‘no compromise’ stance on Michelin’s tyre problems at last weekend’s United States Grand Prix, Max Mosley argued: “To make the competitors in a downhill ski race with the correct skis run on a completely different course to suit those with the wrong skis would be contrary to basic sporting fairness.”?é?Ř And added it, “would be like making all the athletes in a 100m sprint run barefoot because some had forgotten their shoes.” Irrelevant, patronising nonsense not even worthy of a sensible response.
